Its a commercial rent for a workshop and they have called a license.
They dont state any amount they will charge in the agreement. They cut our electricity and changed the locks until we made a payment for the rent that was due, although this was never mnore that 10 days past the due date.
The thing is they are not acting within the license. Stating a fee will be charged but no feee specifics.
Charging £30 every few days is not in line with that of commercial debt of 8% over the 0.5% statutory rate.
At no point in the license does it say they will evict.
The rent is not late every month.
There is no mention of fees that will be charged, Disconnection from services or eveictions etc and if it stops you from working does this not come into the territory of a baliff cannot remove goods deemed as essential, Things that you need for work?
They are chariging £30 every few days, but under the guidance of the
the debt has not even fallen into the late payment category?
The problem is they havnt stated an amount, so doesnt it have to stay within common law at at that point the said 8.5%? If there is no amount, could they charge whatever they fancy if there wasnt a law " We'll charge you £100 every 3 days its late etc"
Wouldn't it be contradictory to the law of the removal of good deemed essential if they locked you out from your studio therefore rendering all of your 'essential equipment' unusable?
